Project partners Dominion Energy and Ørsted have announced the turbine components and monopiles for the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) pilot project have started their journey from Germany and Denmark to North America. The project team and vessel crews have been successful in navigating the impact of the worldwide coronavirus pandemic to keep the team safe and the project on schedule.

The foundations, consisting of the turbines' monopiles, transition pieces and anode cages fabricated by EEW SPC, have been loaded onto the Bigroll Beaufort cargo ship in Rostock, Germany. The components for the two, 6 MW Siemens Gamesa turbines were loaded in Esbjerg, Denmark, before the vessel embarked on a two-week transatlantic journey to Halifax, Canada.

"This is a monumental step toward the installation of the first offshore wind turbines in federal waters, which will deliver clean, renewable energy to our customers," said Mark D. Mitchell, Dominion Energy vice president of generation construction. "The construction of these two turbines will help us reach our goal for net zero emissions and position Virginia as a leader in offshore wind."
